From the Publisher:
TWO KILLERS STALK THE STREETS OF CHICAGO – CAN ONE TAXI DRIVER CORNER THEM BOTH?

Eddie Miles is one of a dying breed: a Windy City hack who knows every street and back alley of his beloved city and takes its recent descent into violence personally. But what can one driver do about a killer targeting streetwalkers or another terrorizing cabbies? Precious little – until the night he witnesses one of them in action… Chicago cabbie Eddie Miles decides to do something about two serial killers--one targeting prostitutes, the other cab drivers--at large in the city when his friend Lenny is murdered and he finds a teenage prostitute left for dead.
Annotation:
Eddie Miles sees a lot of his city from behind the wheel of his cab. He sees a lot of jerks and prostitutes, preppy college kids and tired moms. He sees some bad stuff happen, but never quite like this: someone is targeting cab drivers and his good buddy, Lenny, also a cabbie, becomes the first victim. With a nostalgic prose that evokes the best atmospheric noir, Jack Clark spins a hypnotic tale and takes readers on an eerie tour of the Windy City.

Praise

"Clark's tale is really more of a mood piece than a crime novel....Eddie drives the streets at night like Harry Bosch in a Michael Connelly novel...The cynical, melancholy cabbie point of view is perfect for this kind of neon-lit, noir-tinged, saxophone-scored prose poem, and Clark hits all the right notes." (starred review) - Bill Ott 05/01/2010

"NOBODY'S ANGEL is a gem. For what it is, it's just about perfect. I won't urge would-be novelists to forsake their writing classes and become hackers, but they would do well to read Clark's story, which doesn't contain a wasted word or a false note." - Patrick Anderson 06/12/2010
